Privacy Policy

On this page we inform you about how, when, why and which personal data we collect on our website, based on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union.

Information about the person responsible of this website can be found in the imprint.

Your rights over your data

You have the right to request a summary of the data we have stored about you, to get it corrected, limited in use or deleted altogether. You also have the right of complaint to the responsible regulation authority.

Traces when visiting our website

As with most other websites, certain technically necessary data is automatically collected in the background and temporarily stored in log files on our webserver after visiting our website and pages. These data are primarily used for technical troubleshooting and – in exceptional cases – provided for prosecuting authorities. These data include:

  • Date and time of the access
  • IP address and port
  • The requested page or file, and whether or not this was successfull
  • Basic identification of the web browser used

These data are automatically deleted after 14 days.

Contact form

We provide a contact form to enable a quick and unbureaucratic approach to our services. This mostly corresponds to the sending of a regular email. Except the data traces explained above, no other data is collected and stored on our webserver. In particular, no content of the form is stored or otherwise processed on the webserver.

Integration of third party software

The videos from YouTube on our website have been embedded in privacy mode. This means no cookies (possibly containing personal data) wil be sent to third party services until the video is actually played. In this case personal data might be sent to YouTube or Google’s DoubleClick network on which we do not have any influence.

By clicking on the videos you agree to these processes.

The social media buttons beneath our blog posts (“share”) do use the privacy extension c’t Shariff. Thus personal data is only sent to third party services when the buttons are actually clicked.

By clicking on the buttons you agree to these processes.
